Short summary
Our study showed that ultrasound-guided aspiration of a total hip arthroplasty was more commonly successful and resulted in fewer dry aspirations than fluoroscopy. Ultrasound-guided aspiration yielded a larger volume of fluid than fluoroscopy, even when excluding dry aspirations. Ultrasound was more sensitive than fluoroscopy in diagnosing prosthetic joint infection (PJI) using culture results only and 2018 Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) International Consensus Meeting (ICM) criteria.
